Well, this is a pretty shameless copy-paste of François Beaufort’s post, but pretty useful, so I couldn’t stop sharing it. Now, there won’t be many who would want to do this, so if you are not the very curious type, you can probably skip this post.
How To Spoof Your Chromebook’s MAC Address
Your Chromebook needs to be on Developer mode for this to work.
– Open your Developer Shell
– Enter sudo ifconfig eth0 down to shutdown your internet connection
– Enter sudo ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55 to change your MAC Address
– Enter sudo ifconfig eth0 up to turn back on your internet connection.
If you are connected to the internet through WiFi, you just need to replace eth0with wlan0 in the instructions below.
Be careful, once you reboot your chrome device, the physical MAC address burnt in your network card will be restored.
